The CPSC identified the recalled items as consumer-sized bottles of Super Lube Syncopen Synthetic Penetrant, Super Lube Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid and Super Lube Metal Protectant and Corrosion Inhibitor. The products are used to prevent corrosion in various machinery.

About 3,700 units are being recalled.

Officials urged consumers to immediately secure the recalled Super Lube products out of the sight and reach of children and to contact Kano Laboratories for a full refund. People who bought the products will need to email a photo of the product in their possession to receive a full refund.

The recalled products contain either ethylene glycol or low-viscosity petroleum distillates, which must be in child-resistant packaging as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act, the CPSC said.
